a (house) heart full

Do not wait for life. Do not long for it. 
Be aware, always and at every moment, 
that the miracle is in the here and now.

It is easy to live in the moment when you are playing with lambs~  

This weekend we had many house guests and  it was such a fun and rare opportunity for us just to sit and feed and laugh at the sheeplets.  Kate & Baby Beatrix were perfect and did just what little lambs do ~ provide great entertainment and nibble on fingers.  

Having guests reminded me that there is nothing like a home full of laughter, thoughtful conversation and divine prayer -- It makes my heart so happy.

I also had a phone call today that my (last living) gorgeous, sweet, full-of-love Grandmother passed away this morning.  With a home full of guests I couldn't leave immediately -- but in this *present place* today it was such a gift to sit, pause, and see the simple joys I loved so much about my Grandmother and my life with her.  I remembered her home as a very happy place to be (especially as a little child), laughing at pure silliness and her strong and long-lasting hugs.  

She didn't wait for life...she was one of those that really lived it.   
Out of my sorrow, joy filled memories have taken hold of my heart tonight~  

I am off to be with family for a few days and I (need) welcome your prayers~

grace & peace my sweet friends, 
you are in my overflowing heart, too~
